His client, Levi Aron, has pleaded not guilty to charges of murder and kidnapping. Police say Leiby Kletzky (LYE'-bee KLEHT'-skee) got lost leaving day camp and asked Aron for help before he was killed.
Newspaper headlines have called the suspect a "butcher" and a "lunatic."
Bazile said that amid the tragedy, "another family is distraught as well" — the relatives of a man "accused of the worst crime possible."
